An Optimum Survival Plan is a scheme that defines how best to live. It must cover the following areas:

  • Scope of the plan – define what areas of functionality and processes the plan addresses, who is involved and how far it goes.
  • Negative events – analysis of threats and potential impacts.
  • Positive events – analysis of opportunities and gains.
  • Controls – preventative and reactive measures for negative events, opportunity and gain maximization for positive events.
  • Other related plans, sub-plans, processes and documentation.

An optimum survival plan can be designed for people, groups of people, infrastructure, systems, processes and more. A plan generalized for an individual or a common family unit should consider some if not all of the following components:

  • Contingency Planning
  • Assessment of the Situation
  • Negative Event Plans
  • Positive Event Plans
  • Impact Analysis
  • Adjustments (controls)
  • Supporting Information
  • Phases of the Plan
